The Islamic year kickstarts with Muharram, where the 10th day, known as Ashura, holds great significance. It commemorates the martyrdom of Hazrat Imam Hussain (رضي الله عنه) and his devoted followers.
Fast forward to the 12th of Rabi-ul-Awwal – it’s Eid Milad un Nabi, the celebrated birthday of Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم). Then, on the 27th of Rajab, we observe Shab e Mairaj, the remarkable night journey of the Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) in the presence of Allah.
Don’t miss out on Shab e Barat, the night of forgiveness, on the 15th of Shaban. And mark your calendars for the holiest Muslim night – Shab e Qadar. Remember: prayers on the talaq rates (21st, 23rd, 25th, 27th, 29th) are essential to seek the blessings of Allah.
After Ramadan, we celebrate Eid on the 1st of Shawwal – a joyous occasion for Muslims worldwide. In the month of Zulhijja, Muslims embark on the journey of Hajj and perform the sacred act of Qurbani during Eid ul Adha, honoring the sacrifices of Hazrat Ibrahim (A.S) and his son Hazrat Ismaeel (A.S).
The Hajj season commences on the 8th of Zulhijja, followed by the significant days of Arafah, and concludes with the festive celebration of Eid ul Adha on the 10th of Zulhijja.
